Birds, flowers, bits and bobs....

Well, this last week has gone by very quickly, probably because I spent a lot of time sleeping, resting, reading and recovering from my operation. I was not able to craft as much as usual, as I just didn't have the energy, but sometimes we just have to take a break....But I did manage a few things in between. A simple card for a friend who was in hospital, made with a TH *On the edge* die and with a *house mouse* card tucked into the pocket in the middle. I coloured the picture with pencils, not something I usually like doing, but it was a gentle occupation which I could do while lounging on the couch. Then I managed some flowers using the TH *tattered florals* die, but I am not sure if like them or if I will use them. The black and red bird has been made with honeycomb paper sandwiched between leather-look cardstock and given to a neighbour together with a bottle of pro secco to say *thanks* for giving me a helping hand this past week. And today my friend B visited me and we did some crafting. She worked on her LO, I made 4 tags, which all somehow look a bit bleak, and remind me that autumn is well on its way. But it was good to sit down together and craft and natter again.
Oh, and I must have made the ATC with wings sometime in the week, probably with the remains of the card....
